Sounds great Phil R i guess i just need to wait till i get all the parts together. iI wanna change head pipes,mufflers,air intake,and use the PC V with auto tune. Was hoping to do in steps,but seems like i cant. I was wanting to do head pipes and stock mufflers.Then air intake with tuner.

I would really like to know from those who have replaced the head pipes. Did you see much of a difference by doing so?

Sounds incredible Phil! Cats add a lot of restriction, so you have to wonder what slip ons do when added to a cat equipped engine. Not much in my opinion except sound.

You got to the root of the problem. What about the O2 sensors?

And how did you capture the sound without the wind noise?

Fuel Moto jackpot pipe

I just purchased a Jackpot pipe for my 2011 RKC and would like to know if I hook up all the existing sensors from the stock pipe to the new Jackpot pipe? The Jackpot comes with 4 plugs and am not sure if they are all used? Never attempted before Thanks in advance.

Jackpot 2-1-2 provides ports for the stock O2 sensors in the stock location... I installed the stock O2 sensors, my bike operates in closed loop most of the time.

Video recorded with GoPro HD Hero 2 and Audio-Technica Lavalier Microphone. Microphone was taped to rear of right side saddle bag... used a foam windscreen.

2/1/2 Jackpot header

I heard the video on you tube using this header pipe. Is it louder than stock using the stock mufflers?

I went with a FulSac head pipe. Couldn't be happier.Sound is incredible and it uses the stock cooling tins. I myself like the look of the stock pipes, but now have the sound and performance of an aftermarket pipe.

After 2 years with a Stage 1 H-D air cleaner and slip-ons on my 2010 RK, I went with the Fuel Moto 2>1>2 pipes (I did not get the ceramic coating) and their 4 in. slip-ons, but at the same time, I also did Andrews 48 cams and a ThunderMax, so not sure how much of my new boost is due to the pipes. About all I can say is that FM was great to work with, the price was right, and they look good. I also liked being able to use my like-new heat shields and not having to pay for new ones.

I think I understand that these pipes are very similar to V&H Power Duals - will probably hear negative feedback on that, but that's what I understand.

BTW...FM had a hellofa wait to get the ceramic coating for the pipes and understand the gains for a non-racing application was marginal.
